The Graffiti War Project offers a unique perspective and experience of war through the eyes of those living and dying through these conflicts. Each image represents a moment in time, when an emotion was captured in ink, paint, or pencil, an unconventional historical record of this generation's war. Our Mission is that through sharing these images, we will begin a dialog between soldier and civilian, to bridge this ever-widening divide between those who have endured these wars and the rest of the world that can only imagine the horrors. To bring understanding and true empathy of what these men and women experience during modern conflicts.

We are collecting these images any way we can, through submissions to our website, on Facebook and those sent into us via email. Each day that goes by we lose dozens of these culturally significant creations. Because of this statistic, The Graffiti of War Project headed an expedition to Kuwait and Iraq to embed with US Forces ahead of the impending withdrawal in 2012. During our almost month-long effort, our team was able to document over 2,000 images, raise awareness of our mission and interview dozens of warfighters, civilians and local nationals, however, we still need your help.

Through your participation, we can ensure that we document as much of this Conflict Art (www.Facebook.com/ConflictArt) as we can for this generation and those to come. These unconventional works of art represent a new genre of art to be admired, marveled at and studied but only with your help.

The ultimate goal of this project and book is help raise awareness of these invisible wounds of war and with the help of our non-profit partners such as GiveAnHour.org, develop both traditional and non-traditional forms of treatment such as Music and Art Therapy. Upon the release of the book,
